We are getting towards the end of our fruit season now with the summer fruits being well and truly over. We have a limited harvest of plums this year but lots of pears. They are the yellow variety that you can test for ripeness by twisting them on the tree. If ready they fall off the tree. We also have apples coming but it looks like the majority of the harvest has been destroyed by wasps this year. They seem to be everywhere and it really is impossible to eat in the garden at the moment. I expect we will have some cooking apples but most of the eating variety appear to have bore holes in them already, which also make them easy food for other pests.
